Beats by Dre Partners With Violet Grey on Limited-Edition Headphones

Beats by Dre, the multibillion-dollar, Apple-owned headphones company, is venturing outside its music/sports/youth comfort zone by partnering with a select few specialty retailers, including Los Angeles-based beauty retailer Violet Grey.
Violet Grey’s branded digital content appealed to Beats, as did the opportunity to gain exposure to a hip and cultured group of women. Meanwhile, Violet Grey will gain exposure to Beats’ urban, streetwear-oriented crowd.
“Beats has always been on our list of brands we love,” said Violet Grey founder Cassandra Grey. “I’m a marketer at heart and the story of how Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine marketed the headphones through sports culture really inspired me. When it comes to curating nonbeauty products we think about what brings us joy, what’s convenient and what could most benefit our lives. Headphones are one of those accessories that have become a staple in our wardrobes. They’re a necessary luxury.”
Beginning Thursday, the Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones in matte black will be available for $ 349.95 among the rest of the Violet Code-approved product lineup on VG.com.
The partnership will be feted tonight during a private event at Violet Grey’s Melrose Place retail studio, where the two companies will host about 40 female celebrities and influencers including January Jones,

Birkenstock and Berlin Porcelain Maker KPM Join Forces on Limited-Edition Sandal Collection

Strange Bedfellows: On the heels of its most recent collaboration with Rick Owens as well as this year’s assorted Birkenstock Box cooperations with retailers the world over, the footwear maker has tapped a somewhat unlikely royal partner for the latest take on the brand’s iconic Arizona and Gizeh cork footbed sandals: KPM Berlin.
Founded in 1763 and thus 11 years older than Birkenstock, the highly respected Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur provided its Kurland Royal Noir pattern as well as a signature porcelain inset for the limited-edition Birkenstock x KPM. There are four models in all, the Arizona and Gizeh in black-on-black embossed leather, and both models in a black and gold Royal Noir print. Limited to 300 pieces per style, the sandals are available exclusively at Berlin’s leading premium department store KaDeWe through June 9, as well as online at birkenstock.com for 280 euros a pop. For those who’d like to wear their Birkenstocks and have a matching cup of coffee, too, a large-sized KPM Kurland Royal Noir cup and saucer will set one back 1,190 euros.
The special edition was feted Thursday night with a cocktail reception at the third-floor Birkenstock X KPM pop-up shop at KaDeWe, which featured the Birkenstock sandals, items from

Canada Goose Partners With FDNY Foundation for Limited-edition ‘Bravest’ Coat

Canada Goose and the FDNY Foundation have teamed up to unveil the brand’s “Bravest Coat.”
The Canadian outerwear company will donate all proceeds of the $ 695 limited-run item to the nonprofit, which specializes in fire safety education. In addition to outreach programs for the public, the group provides training and support for FDNY fire and EMS workers, as well as technology and equipment for the department.
The unisex wind-resistant jacket with reflective stripes and metal clasps is being sold in Canada Goose stores in New York City, Toronto, London and Tokyo and through the company’s web site. It is adorned with the foundation’s emblem on the left chest. For a customizable element, consumers will receive a selection of five official FDNY Firehouse patches that they can change as they see fit on the Velcro patch on the garment’s right sleeve.
Noting the Toronto-based company’s 60-year heritage and experience making products for industrial workers, researchers and in some cases first responders, Canada Goose’s chief product officer Lee Turlington said the initiative was an opportunity “to honor the people who protect the people in the city that we have such a strong relationship with.” Canada Goose opened a SoHo boutique in November 2016.

Lululemon Just Released the Prettiest Limited-Edition Leggings

Tomorrow isn’t just any old Friday: Millions of people will be celebrating Chinese New Year on February 16. In honor of the holiday, Lululemon created a limited-edition capsule collection inspired by the festival.

The brand updated its classic leggings and sports bra styles with a pretty new print that boasts a deeper meaning. Lululemon explained the significance in a press release: “The color red symbolizes good fortune and joy for the Lunar New Year, as most notably found in traditional red pockets and gifting during the festival, while flowers like magnolias, peonies, plum and lily blossoms are prominent symbols in Chinese culture and art. Each flower and branch was hand-drawn and brought to life with different shades of red.”

The result, much like every other Lululemon launch, is a collection we’re dying to get our hands on ASAP. Scroll down to shop the pieces now. 

Available in sizes 2 to 12.

Solange Drops Limited-Edition Celestial-Themed Merchandise

Solange Knowles is back with two new lines of merchandise available on her website store just in time for the holiday season.

The celestial-themed capsules, titled “Cosmic Journey” and “Orion’s Rise,” will only be available until Dec. 22 or, as Solange put it, “during the reflection of the retrograde.”

Products range from T-shirts ($ 30) to long-sleeve shirts ($ 40) and crew-neck sweaters ($ 50). Most are available in black, white and various shades of gray.

One shirt reads “(bite the hand)” in compact font, which references a quote from New York Times journalist Jon Caramanica, who believed Solange should have been more cognizant of her fanbase by keeping her political opinions to herself.

“I went to Solange’s concert and I noted who her audience was, and if I were her, I’d be careful of making these statements because I’d be careful not to bite the hand that feeds me,” he wrote. Solange used this as inspiration behind the title to her “A Seat At the Table” album, according to Billboard.

View the rest of the “Cosmic Journey” and “Orion’s Rise” collections below and shop the capsules here.
